Menu Plan Monday | August 15

Here's what we're having for dinner this week. What's on your plan?

Monday:  Veggie Pasta with Fresh Pesto

My hubby is outside pulling basil leaves from our plants as I type.  We are going to make a giant batch of homemade pesto then freeze it in ice cube trays.  The pesto tossed with pasta and veggies is a favorite meal all year long!

Tuesday: Vegetable Soup & Grilled Cheese

I know it's Summer but I've been missing veggie soup & grilled cheese dinner.  I have browned ground beef in the freezer and lots of fresh tomatoes.  I'll add whatever other veggies I have and call it dinner!

Wednesday: Chicken Fajitas & Black Beans

As usual there is Mexican on our menu plan, but not tacos this week.  Chicken Fajitas are still a meal that everyone can customize the way they want it.  I like to slice chicken breasts, bell peppers and onions into strips to freeze in separate baggies.  Add some flour tortillas, cheese and sour cream for an easy fajita dinner.

Thursday: Happy 7th Birthday to my Dylan!!

My baby can't be 7 can he??  He is so grown up in so many ways. I am very proud to be his mom!  We are taking a few friends bowling per Dylan's request then heading back here for pizza, cake & ice cream.  Not homemade this time …. we're getting $5 Little Caesar's instead.

Friday:  Grilled Italian Sausage with Pepper & Onions

We have our first of 3 school open houses on Friday night.  School starts next Tuesday.  Grilled Italian sausages topped with peppers & onions plus a veggie and chips will be an easy meal either before or after the open house.

Saturday: Grilling Out

We are heading to a friends lake house at Williamstown Lake for the day and evening.  We will be grilling out burgers and taking a side to share with everyone.

Sunday: Shredded BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, Homemade Fries & Roasted Veggies

I stocked up when chicken was on sale a Meijer's recently.  Some of it was slow cooked then shredded and is now in the freezer.  Mixed with BBQ sauce it will be great for sandwiches.

If you menu plan,do you do it on a weekly or monthly basis?
